Destiny 2 Exotics list - New Season of Plunder weapons, armour and The Witch Queen Exotics listed

All Exotics from the base game through to Year 5's latest additions.

Destiny 2 Exotics are optional weapons and armour pieces with perks and abilities you cannot find anywhere else in the game.

Every new expansion and season introduces more to the unlock and pursue, either through random world drops or elaborate quests.

This page outlines every Exotic available in Destiny 2 and how to unlock them, from those in the latest update, through to those whose quests have been vaulted since release.

How Destiny 2 Exotics work

Exotics are yellow / golden class weapons and armour with unique perks and stats. These powerful and unique items have a catch; you are only be able to equip one Exotic at a time in your weapon or armour slots. (A good rule of thumb to follow is only one golden item can be equipped per side of the inventory screen.)

As with the original Destiny, it's expected you can only equip on Exotic weapon at a time.

Exotics can be sourced in a number of ways, including:

  • Decrypting Exotic Engrams
  • Random rewards from Public Events, chests, Crucible matches and other activities
  • Special vendors, such as Xur
  • Completing specific quests and missions
  • Season pass-exclusive Exotic unlocks
  • Rare drops from solo Lost Sectors
  • 'Legacy' Exotics from the Monument to the Lost Lights vault
  • Eververse and decrypting Bright Engrams (for cosmetic Exotic items only, such as Emotes, Sparrows and Ghosts)

The most difficult and powerful Exotics will require you to unlock and complete specific quests, which in the past have involved many steps and in the case of one or two, elaborate ARG-style puzzles to solve.

Additionally, with Destiny 2 adopting a seasonal model, some Exotics will be time-limited per season, whether by purchasing a season pass, or through a season-specific questline.

Between this and destinations and activities being regularly vaulted, most Exotics no longer available from their original sources will be available in the Monument to the Lost Lights Vault, a terminal in the Tower where you can purchase lost Exotics. These, as well as the most currently available Exotics, are listed on this page.

Monument to the Lost Lights can be found next to the Vault in the Tower.

As well as the above, some Exotics can also be upgraded further with the use of Masterwork Catalysts.

With the arrival of Year 5 and subsequent seasons and DLC, there are new sets of Exotics to find.

Destiny 2 'Legacy' Exotics from Monument to the Lost Lights

Certain Exotics will become time limited as their seasons come and go. Meanwhile, with the arrival of Beyond Light in November 2020 onwards, many Exotic quests were the vaulted alongside their respective destinations, a trends that's continued since with the vaulting of Tangled Shore and more in Year 5.

As a result, many Exotics are not available via their original sources, but Bungie has an answer - the Monument to the Lost Lights Vault, a terminal in the Tower where you can purchase lost Exotics.

All require a range of hard-to-get currencies and materials, reflecting the difficulty in obtaining them in the first place.
